Achronix Speedcore eFPGAs Offer Unbeatable Bandwidth and Latency Performance

Achronix Speedcore embedded FPGA (eFPGA) IP from Achronix has brought the power and flexibility of programmable logic to ASICs and SoCs.

Achronix Speedcore eFPGA IP

Customers can integrate a Achronix Speedcore eFPGA into an SoC for high-performance, compute-intensive and real-time processing applications such as AI, machine learning, 5G wireless, networking and automotive.

Proven on the TSMC 16FF+ process node, Speedcore eFPGA IP enables customers to create a customized programmable fabric.

Users specify their logic, memory and DSP resource needs, then Achronix configures the Speedcore IP to meet their individual requirements. Speedcore look-up-tables (LUTs), RAM blocks and DSP64 blocks can be assembled like building blocks to create the optimal programmable fabric for any given application. Achronix delivers the customized Speedcore eFPGA instance as a hard macro in GDSII format along with a customized version of ACE design tools.

There are many benefits to embedding Speedcore technology into an SoC. Compared to a separate standalone FPGA, Speedcore eFPGA IP offers the following:

  • 10× higher bandwidth
  • 100× lower latency
  • 10× lower cost
  • 50% lower power

Achronix Speedcore FPGA Compiled Architecture

Achronix Speedcore eFPGA IP

As opposed to a one-size-fits-all approach to building an embeddable FPGA fabric, the Speedcore solution is compiled architecture.

Rather than having to pick from a library of pre-built fabrics, a system architect can define a mix of LUTs, LRAMs, BRAMs and DSP blocks for a cluster, then specify overall resource goals for the fabric along with an aspect ratio (expressed in clusters). The resulting fabric is an X by Y array of these custom clusters.

During this specification phase, Achronix returns a detailed proposal on the custom fabric, plus a software model for evaluation using ACE design tools.

 

Customers can specify the resource counts for their Speedcore instance for the following building blocks:

  • Logic – look-up-tables (LUTs) plus integrated wide MUX functions and fast adders
  • Logic RAM – 4 kb per memory block
  • Block RAM – 20 kb per memory block
  • DSP64 – each block has a 18 × 27 multiplier, 64-bit accumulator and 27-bit pre-adder
  • Custom blocks – customer/application-specific functions

Resource & performance specifications include:

Speedcore logic density – from 5K to 2M LUTs

Speedcore performance – max 750 MHz

Speedcore power – 12 mW static power per 1,000 LUTs at 105°C (on the TSMC 16FF+ process)

Speedcore die size – 0.20 mm2 per 1,000 LUTs (on the TSMC 16FF+ process)

Programmable Color Sequence RGB LED Driver for IoT applications

Self-running with RGB patterns saves power with no processor interaction.

Integrated Silicon Solution, Inc. (ISSI), a leader in advanced memory and analog IC solutions, has introduced the IS31FL3194, latest addition to the company’s innovative line of FxLED RGB drivers.

ISSI Programmable Color Sequence RGB LED Driver For IO Applications

The IS31FL3194 is a fully programmable 3 channel LED driver supporting a wide range of color rendering capabilities for consumer and industrial IoT applications.

The IS31FL3194 can be programmed through a 400 kHz I2C bus to perform LED light timing sequences and color patterns with gamma correction.

Each of the 3 LED channels can be independently adjusted to 8-bit current levels (40mA max), 8-bit PWM (RGB color mixing), gamma correction, and timing sequences.

These wide range of programmable sequences will continue operating even when the system microcontroller is in standby mode thereby conserving system power.

“As a leading provider of innovative LED driver solutions for the consumer and automotive markets we recognize one of the challenges faced by our customers has been lowering the system power budget,” said Ven Shan, VP of Analog Marketing at ISSI. “We developed the IS31FL3194 with programmable RGB pattern sequences so it can continue driving the LEDs even when the micro is placed in a low power sleep mode. Because the IS31FL3194 takes responsibility of driving the LEDs, this not only saves system power but also frees up the micro to focus on system critical functions.”

The IS31FL3194 is available in a tiny 1mmx1.6mm WCSP-8 package, making it one of the smallest and most highly programmable LED driver solutions in the market today.

The flexible programmability enables one to configure the RGB LEDs to operate either as one RGB group or RG+W group or 3 single color LED in a pre-established pattern.

In addition a low 150mV dropout voltage at 20mA, 0.8mA quiescent current and a 1uA shutdown current makes this an ideal solution for low-power battery applications.

The IS31FL3194 LED Driver can generate pre-programmed colors with patterns that can be used as signals to gain attention or to provide notification or status in wearables, portable medical devices, smart home, smart retail and other emerging IoT applications.

Swissbit introduces USB 3.1 sticks

Swissbit is pleased to introduce a new range of USB 3.1 flash drives. The new USB sticks fulfill the tough requirements of flash memory for industrial use.

Mobile, designed for industrial use and secure.

Swiss U500K USB Stick

 

The series is based on a highly sophisticated USB 3.1 flash controller and comprises the product range U-500k with a highly reliable SLC-NAND and U-50k with MLC-NAND. Furthermore, a version with MLC-NAND in pSLC configuration is offered under the name U-56k.

The benefit: an endurance seven times longer than that of a MLC-NAND with the same memory density.

Swissbit plans to have the following densities available by the third quarter of 2018:

– SLC versions, 2GB to 32 GB,

– MLC version, 16GB to 128 GB

– pSLC version, 8GB to 64 GB

Particularly important considering the new stricter data protection provisions: all USB 3.1 sticks are also offered in versions with integrated data protection features.

USB flash drives are often used to transport data between different locations or as exchangeable memory expansion in industrial applications such as log data storage, data backup, system upgrade or as license token. Now Swissbit offers new USB stick ranges that fulfill the same requirements for professional applications as other industrial storage solutions yet are extremely easy to use and universally applicable.

Firmware for smart memory chip usage

In combination with the SuperSpeed USB 3.1 interface, U-500k, U-50k and U 56k offer outstanding data rates for the sequential writing of data. As the firmware works with page-based mapping, the random-write IOPS performance increases, while wear decreases significantly. This in turn makes USB sticks the perfect solution for data logging applications. Smart firmware routines recognize weak data segments and update them before any data loss occurs. This is particularly important when used as boot medium or for long-term data storage.

Security and data protection

Swissbit will offer special variants of these USB sticks for confidential or license-relevant content under the names PU-500k, PU-50k and PU-56k. Configurable security options allow for data encryption and access restrictions with PIN protection including repeat counter and hidden or read-only partitions. The data protection option “DP” prevents data from being spied upon in case of loss or theft of a flash drive. Furthermore, the secured USB stick can also be employed as copy-protected license tokens.

Proven enclosure

For this new USB 3.1 product range, Swissbit AG once again has opted for their proven flash drive casing “unitedCONTRAST II”, already used for the very popular USB 2.0 sticks.

All new USB sticks are also available in custom design options.

Additionally, Swissbit plans to also add a “Nano” form factor to this range – a robust flash drive in an enclosed tamper-proof metal casing.
